I’m an Upper West Side doula providing birth services to families in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and New Jersey (if accessible by public transportation).
If you’re interested in working together, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page. I’m so looking forward to hearing from you!
BIRTH DOULA SUPPORT
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Evidence-based information, grounded emotional support, and reliable options for physical comfort can be so valuable as you approach this time of powerful transformation.
My doula services include but are not limited to:
Phone/text/email support throughout your pregnancy and into your postpartum period
1-2 prenatal visits (in your home) to talk about your preferences in birth and any concerns you may have, to practice comfort measures, and to get to know each other! The more we understand and trust each other, the more I can help you have the birth experience you envision
Help writing a birth plan
On-call commitment to you starting at 38 weeks
Continuous emotional and physical support in labor and birth for you (and your partner or other children, if applicable)
Immediate postpartum support for the first 1-2 hours after birth (until your new family feels settled)
Immediate lactation support for baby’s first latch (if breastfeeding is your plan)
1 dedicated lactation visit in your home or in the hospital, depending on your situation (usually 1-3 days after the birth)
1 postpartum visit in your home (usually within 7-10 days after the birth)
3 months of continued postpartum support by phone/email to help ease you into your “4th trimester”
Resources and referrals where needed - prenatally and postpartum
*Everyone deserves to have a doula present at their birth — I offer sliding scale to families with demonstrable need. Please reach out, no matter your circumstances.)
